Trend Report: Biodynamic Wellness

Is Biodynamic the Next Organic?

Biodynamic farming is regarded by many as more than a method — they see it as a coherent philosophy. Inspired by the biodiversity of natural ecosystems, biodynamic growing is a regenerative farming practice designed to enhance the soil and ecological system rather than destroy it. As ‘Big Ag' has gradually depleted our soils, so too has it reduced the vitality of the soil's produce and its ability to store carbon (hello climate change). Right now, biodynamic is where organic was 20 years ago — on the periphery and seemingly extraneous. But, as organic continues to grow more commercialized, brands will look to biodynamics to be their differentiator.


Brands like EPIC and Yellow Barn are leading the biodynamic food revolution, placing a focus on relaying information beyond just ingredients, helping quench consumer thirst for increased transparency. This fervor for social responsibility and biodynamic processes is spilling into other industries too, with personal care brands like Weleda or retailers like Patagonia using their platforms to preach the importance of climate-friendly practices. Biodynamics may not be as prominent as organic yet, but before long, it’ll be commonplace to sip your chamomile knowing that it’s grown on a 100-acre biodynamic garden at the base of the Italian Alps and harvested at night when the essential oils are at their peak. (Yes, really.)
